Is it even worth it to keep your car if you're going to be OTR?????

My Dad went a little nuts and bought 4 cars before he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's I getting rid of the last one. Bought my youngest a good used car (her first car, she's 20). Bought myself a '91 volvo station wagon for $1500. To be a Terminal car. No more payments and much cheaper insurance.

ATDS school

Hey there everyone. "Sam" here, I started ATDS this Monday. I obtained my CLP Last week so I got got to skip a week of school! They put me in a truck straight line backing and learning to shift the first day. I'm having A blast! This is the most fun I've ever had in the hot Texas sun! I love it. I'm picking everything up like it's second nature. Mr. James the lead instructor is the best. Any question or concern He's right there with help and solutions. I'm still working on not Pressing the clutch into the clutch-brake to shift but, I'll get it. I hear "Off the clutch" in my sleep. I do the happy happy joy joy dance everyday. I'm learning so much and loving every minute of it. I'm set to take my test and graduate on Oct. 4th. I go to USA Trucking after that. I wish I had done this 35 years ago! Sam Mommalaw to my kids.

I've already got a good pair of work boots and, I spend 2-4 hours a day studying. I'm basically rewriting the dmv book. Maybe overkill but, that's how I learn best. I want to be as prepared as possible for the tests and able to concentrate on learning the new things that come up in class. After 25 years of caregiving I'm looking forward to "me" time. Doing something I've always wanted to do. I've got the "breathe" down after dealing with a Father with Alzheimer's for 4 years, not to mention raising 2 daughters.😂

I've been lurking and reading the forums for months now. I just passed my DOT physical And drug test. I start taking my DPS exams next week so I have my CLP before my Classes start. I have learned so much from everyone here, and I wanted to thank everyone for all the helpful advice. I'm going into my new career with eyes wide open and a great attitude. I know my success is all on my shoulders and plan to milk everyone I can for knowledge and advice. I can't wait to start being the best professional driver I can be! Again, Thanks to everyone. Sam

Leaving a dog in the truck

Not to highjack the thread but, how do get a larger dog, say 40 pounds up in and out of the truck.

Newbie questions

Hi, everyone. I'm a 56 year old divorced lady with two grown girls. I'm currently taking care of my Dad who has Alzheimer's. When he passes, I'm going to become a trucker! I've found a good school connected with Central Texas College. I have the tuition set aside. I've researched and read, read, read. I want to drive with my beloved dog. I have a good grasp of the sleep non-schedule, the hygiene issues, proper clothing etc. I'm already studying the dmv CDL book. I'm the perfect candidate for truck driving! LOL. The thing I am confused about is this. When you are driving OTR and you get a few days break between runs do you have to pack up all your stuff and find someplace for you and your baby to stay, then repack and remove? How does this work?? My oldest is in Waco, and the youngest isn't quite finished with college so she doesn't know where she'll end up. A home base will be iffy. Any ideas or suggestions wouldbe appriciated.
